COUPLE BURIED AT SPRINGFIELD CITY CEMETERY
This is the 120th anniversary of the death of Linton Lewis Moran. He died at the age of 69 on May 14, 1891. Born March 17, 1822, he was the son of William Moran and Susan Linton. Susan was the daughter of Captain John Linton and Nancy Mason. William and Susan Moran are buried in the Linton Cemetery, although Susan has no gravestone to commemorate her death.
Linton L. Moran married Sarah J. Rawlings. Their children were James L. Moran, born 13 Jul 1859, who married Katie E. Janes; William Franklin Clinton Moran, born 18 May 1863, who married Louise Hayden; and Susan Margaret Moran, born 30 Sep 1872, who married James Franklin Head.
Linton Lewis and Sarah J. Rawlings Moran are buried in the
Springfield City Cemetery. She preceded him in death on 17 Jun 1888. Both stones are deteriorated, but hers is barely readable – and these pictures were taken about ten years ago.
